Graphics cards for CAD

I am currently trying to assist our architecture department in ordering new systems, and am trying to figure out what video card they should get. In the past, we went with the Gloria II. I found some nice comparison charts, but they didn't show information on how more standard video cards operate in AutoCAD. For instance, how would a Geforce3 card perform? I'm trying to balance between functionality and money, and the Gloria II costs twice what a GeForce3 does. Any comments are appreciated.
